Book Spotlight: Boo’s Shoes

Boo's Shoes: A Rabbit and Fox Story: Learn to Tie Shoelaces by Sybrina Durant & Illustrated by Pumudi Gardiyawasam. New Release!


No Laces! That’s what Boo, the bunny, always says. He doesn’t want to learn to tie them. He has plenty of shoes for every occasion and none of them have laces or strings. So, what’s the point of learning to tie? His friend, Farah Fox, convinces him that it’s a skill he can use. . . and one that might make him happier, too.

This book is meant to be a parent-child activity. Youngsters can read Boo’s story and their parents can help with the how-to-tie instruction pages. A fun shoelace-themed “I Did It” badge is included at the back of the book to give in celebration of conquering this difficult task.

Exercises in manual dexterity build self-esteem in children. Knowing how to tie shoe-strings, scarves and more into a bow is a useful and rewarding skill.

“Teach a child a useful skill. Build confidence and self-esteem that lasts a lifetime.”
Author, Sybrina Durant

Other books in the “Learn To Tie With The Rabbit and the Fox” series are the book with that name in English, Spanish and Tagalog plus a special little book to gift to boys in a wedding party. “Nellie Knows How To Knot A Neck Scarf”, “Ned Knows How To Knot A Neck Tie” and “Cleo Can Tie A Bow” are also part of the series.

About The Author


I am the author of many different types of books. Some are technical and others are fanciful. Illustrated books are my favorite. I believe that you can capture a reader’s attention with a good story but amazing artwork will reel them in and keep them riveted.

I’ve got a new Rabbit and Fox story. It’s called Boo’s Shoes and is a companion took to Cleo Can Tie A Bow! Make sure to put it on your bookshelf so that you you’ll have it handy when you know someone who wants to learn to tie a bow.

Journey To Osm – The Blue Unicorn’s Tale is my first full-length novel. Please look for it on these Goodreads Listopia lists and give it a vote up on a few of them.…

Please look for “The Blue Unicorn’s Journey To Osm Illustrated Book For Teens and Older Readers” on this Goodreads Listopia.… A vote from you would be fantastic.

I’ve also written a companion book for little children called “Unicorns From Unimaise – The Magical Metal-Horn Tribe.”

I also believe if you teach a child with a story and pictures, they will remember it forever. With that in mind, I wrote the “Learn To Tie A Tie With The Rabbit and The Fox” series of instructional books for boys and girls.
